Polpettone in Crosta is one of the traditional dishes I love from my early childhood. I was helping mamma making a big flavorsome meatball. Try my recipe by cooking the meatloaf before covering it with the puff pastry to avoid the puff pastry from excessively absorbing the cooked meat juices resulting in a crispy and light golden pastry crust.
